Shetland's Marine College Wins Award


The NAFC Marine Centre has won the Aquaculture Supplier of the Year Award at The Crown Estate's Scottish Marine Aquaculture Awards 2013.

Commenting on the success after the award was presented at Prestonfield House in Edinburgh, Alan Bourhill, the NAFC's Senior Development Manager, said: “These awards are renowned for recognising "the best of the best" in the aquaculture industry, so we were delighted to receive two shortlist nominations, but to go ahead and win an award is a fantastic achievement for the Centre."

“I am very pleased that the innovation, professionalism and commitment to customer care shown by our aquaculture development team over the past few years have resulted in the award of 'Aquaculture Supplier of the Year'."

The Crown Estate's Scottish Commissioner. Gareth Baird, said: “Many congratulations to the NAFC Marine Centre. The winning entries displayed an exceptional level of innovation and responsibility in their approach to business and to environmental sustainability. Such excellence and high standards will help ensure the continuing success of an industry that is critically important to Scotland's coastal communities and local economies. With a record number of entries this year, The Crown Estate is proud to provide a platform to highlight the sterling work within the industry.”
